Sports, sculpture take national stage in exhibits

Two national caliber exhibits on the south Strand have hit grand slams this summer.

A Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition, “Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America,” continues through Sept. 5 at the Georgetown County Museum. Brookgreen Gardens, on U.S. 17, between Murrells Inlet and Litchfield Beach, again presents the National Sculpture Society’s 82nd annual Awards Exhibition, through Nov. 1.
